Visited with a group of friends last weekend and it was a lovely stay. Staff really nice and helpful throughout. Room in need of bit of a refurb but was clean and comfortable. A man fell asleep in the corridor but once notified there was someone to deal with it within 5 mins without any fuss. Excellent hotel located on... More

The room was lovely, the staff were fabulous and the location was great. The town is a bit of a hike as a result of the hills, but well worth it! The people in Ireland are uncommonly friendly and helpful. Amazing trip

Our room faced the car park but with zero notice I was not surprised. The room itself was a good size , clean and comfortable. Later in the evening we returned to... More

We visited the terrace bar in the river court hotel on a sunny spring evening last week. We loved the view of the castle and outdoor seating. We had nice chicken wings to start but were very disappointed with our choice of main courses. My tortellini tasted and looked straight out of a packet and the tomato sauce tasted tinned.... More

The location is superb, but the execution is lacking. The River Court needs renovation. It is very dated. The sheets weren't "thread bare" but the hotel is/was. We checked in with just a few questions. The desk attendant was somewhat less than informative and communicated an utter lack of interest in help us out., saying "ask in the morning". The... More

I dropped in to the River Court Easter Monday afternoon for food & a couple of pints with my two brothers. The place was absolutely choc a bloc & the staff were under severe pressure. We were lucky to grab a table on the terrace which was great in the sunny weather. We had toasted sandwiches & chips which took... More

Went here on Easter Monday with a large group of family. Only good points were the weather and the location. Everything else was a shambles. At one point 4 of us moved to the food area, we waited so long for our order to be taken we decided we would just have chips as it seemed anything else would take... More
